Loretta Lynch isn't a Washington insider. But her track record as U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York shows she's largely been in sync with the Justice Department's priorities under Attorney General Eric Holder, Jr.

Adrianne Walvoord Webb : The Legal Intelligencer : September 12, 2014
In a unanimous, precedential—and exceptional—opinion issued last week in , No. 13-1089 (3d Cir. N.J. Sept. 3, 2014), the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit partly overturned the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey and reinstated the fraud and fraudulent concealment claims for asbestos victims and their families in a case against BASF Catalysts LLC, the world's largest chemical maker. Factually speaking, asbestos victims still have a claim against BASF. Emotionally speaking, this decision is a powerful wake-up call for lawyers who take creative license in stretching, and manipulating, legal privileges beyond the point that ethics and the law allows.
